How do I search for Forex scams?
- What do I do if I have been scammed?
- How can lawyers help me if I have been scammed?
The most important thing that one can do to avoid getting scammed is to learn how to trade the Forex market properly. The difficulty with this is to find trustworthy Forex brokers/teachers who can be trusted. The hobbyist should know that the broker has already made the money he says he has, and due diligence is the key here.
The Forex market is not a casino but rather a very serious market where trillions of currency units are traded daily. Use demo accounts and learn how to make long-term profits first before real trading. Know that like any professional skill, it can take years to properly master Forex trading. Any claim that you can make money fast should be avoided.
Don't take the claims made on the face of it, take the time to do your own analysis. An inexperienced trader should be decisive in their approach, analyzing stats and creating their own functions which they test and succeed in demo account first. This will take time to achieve but will serve the inexperienced trader better than trusting an automated computer program. Do not rush to invest that is "too good to be true".
Other things a person might want to check is the authenticity of the company making the claims or selling the experience/course. To do this, check the location/jurisdiction where the company is registered, as a lot of scammers will trade forex from a place where they believe local law will make it difficult to sue them internationally.
What do I do if I get scammed?
If you have been tricked, report the fraud to the appropriate authority. For the United Kingdom, go to http://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/scams/report-scam.
Additionally, it is a good idea to tell your story to the forex community so that other individuals do not fall for the same scam.
